This charming House quilt is a pattern designed by Ruby Short McKim in 1935. She sold fabric as well as instructions for blocks to make either a quilt or a pillow or stool top. This example has a combination of solid and gingham fabrics, most likely sold by McKim, that make a soft yet lively composition. It is in unwashed condition. There is one spot about the size of a dime near the bottom binding but no other condition apologies. It is quilted with cable patterning throughout the sashing and floral medallions at the grid intersections. Feather designs are quilted throughout the border. Measurements are 79" x 80". Western Pennsylvania origin; circa 1935.
